“We can’t live forever, but while we are alive we can live well.” – Kip Andersen, What The Health Documentary
Often in conversations surrounding lifestyle changes, you may hear ‘why bother, I’m going to die anyways, so might as well enjoy life now.’ In my line of work, I hear that statement a lot. While that statement may hold some truth, it is said from a place of ignorance. These individuals say this from a place of sound mind, and a body that is relatively cooperative. Speak to anyone who has endured chronic illness, endless medical appointments, the inability to work, difficulties completing basic daily activities of life, and you may hear a different take. Most of those individuals wished they would have taken the time to invest in their health, un-busy themselves, take time to be more present with family and friends, etc.
